Egocentric Perception, Interaction and Computing in the Deep Learning Era
Aim: A 3-year exchange program between the University of Tübingen (Computer Science Department) and the University of Patras (Electrical and Computer Engineering Department) in Greece. The aim of the project is to initiate a long-term sustainable collaboration and academic exchange between the two universities, to foster a tight integration between the participating research groups, and increasing significantly the synergy of their complementary expertises. The collaboration between the participating institutions will be facilitated through the joint supervision of graduate students, a series of mutual exchanges for collaboration on a detailed research plan and the exchange of guest lecturers. Special workshops aimed at intensifying the research collaboration as well as summer schools, targeted at training young students and introducing them to the fields of machine learning and perception engineering will be organised.

VUB – UPatras International Joint Research Group on ICT
Aim: Strategic collaboration that enables both partners to strengthen their position in the individual core competence domains and deliver cross-disciplinary research contributions to the vast domain of E2E ICT systems. Moreover, joint European projects, publications and MSc/PhD students are pursued. The collaboration acts as a platform that seeds student mobility to reach the European goals of exchange of human capital. Moreover, the goal is to connect to the companies in local incubation ecosystems and as such also boost the local economies by an increased knowledge transfer both at academic and at B2B level.
